Second reunion blitz planned for Brisbane
Howie: from ASOPA to Aussie wildlife vet

Tempus fugit and all that…

It’s a melancholy thought, but the death of Syd Neilson is another reminder that we are beginning to lose more of our erstwhile and esteemed colleagues to ill health and the great Behain. All the more reason, I suppose, for a renewed focus both on comradeship and on what may be our legacy.

Taken by this thought, I penned a quatrain:

Away they march, our onetime peers,
Who preceded us by so few years,
And who now inspire this simple text -
There they go, and we'll be next!
